Over the Moon for Olive Oil

As I continue my research and education on skin care I came across a myriad of reasons why everyone should make a concerted effort to care for their skin.  The skin is, after all, the largest organ on the human body and it also absorbs everything you put on it into your blood stream.  What you put on your skin largely contributes to the level of toxins in your blood, thus possibly having an impact on your health.  This is terribly alarming. 

At risk of going off topic, I strongly recommend you do research on the amount of toxins you are exposed to daily and the possible adverse effects of products you use on your skin like lotions, makeup, hair dye, after shave, perfumes and of course body soaps.  Soaps comprised of chemicals essentially defeat the purpose of cleaning the body if they are effectively contaminating your blood stream. 

So… what do we do about it?

I’ve long since gone organic after reading countless articles and studies that support the claim we are unwittingly absorbing toxins into our blood stream every day.  Aside from Witch Hazel, and Coconut Oil..  I have become a huge fan of olive oil.  Olive oil has many healthy benefits to your skin.  It has many uses aside from cooking with it.  Some of the major beneficial properties include healthier skin and anti-aging properties.  Organic olive oil based skin products really make a difference and it’s also very good for hydrating the skin and removing make up.  It is also sensitive skin friendly.

I tend to be on the go with a life mantra of “there aren’t enough hours in the day.”  It is quite important to make sure I make the most out of my daily routine.  It makes perfect sense to incorporate an organic skin product with an active ingredient that has multiple uses.

  • Removes dirt and makeup without over stripping the face causing break outs

  • Sensitive skin friendly

  • Positive effects on blood stream if it sinks into the skin – even better

  • Repairs and maintains skin health

Why You Can’t Live Without Witch Hazel

Witch Hazel has become one of the most important items in my medicine cabinet.  It has multiple medical and aesthetic uses.  Topically, it can be applied for minor skin rash, irritation, bug bites and sunburn.  It can also clear up acne, blemishes, brighten skin, shrink pores and eye bags.thy-045178-1

I have used it for years now.  I cleanse my face and splash Thayer’s Witch Hazel with lemon on it and let it air dry before I apply makeup.  I use nothing else.  I have not had a break out since.  It gives a natural dewy glow without over drying your skin or leaving it greasy.  At night, I also put some on a cotton swab to remove eye make up and I dab a little extra under my eyes so that I do not wake up looking too tired or worn out.

There are many other uses for Witch Hazel.  Please check out some articles listed below for further uses.
